1. Canada      7-4-0 25P +14 goal differential
2. US             6-3-2 21P +9 goal differential
3. Mexico       6-3-2 21P +6 goal differential
4. Panama     5-2-4 17P +1 goal differential
5. Costa Rica 4-4-3 16P +1 goal differential

Canada has games left against Costa Rica, Jamaica and Panama
US has games against Mexico, Panama and Costa Rica
Mexico has games against the US, Honduras and El-Salvador
Panama plays Honduras, US and Canada
Costa Rica plays Canada, El Salvador and the US
El Salvador plays Jamaica, Costa Rica, and Mexico

Jamaica and Honduras have been eliminated from the World Cup.  El Salvador can't get into the top 3 but has a hypothetical chance to pass Panama/Costa Rica for 4th to get the play-in spot.

Top 3 team make the World Cup. 

For Costa Rica to pass Canada they would have to go 3-0-0 while Canada goes 0-0-3.  They would also have net outscore Canada by a +13 differential to match on goal differential.  If Canada earns a single point they clinch against Costa Rica.

For Panama to pass Canada they would need to go 3-0-0 while Canada goes no better than 0-1-0.  They would also have to net outscore Canada by a +13 goal differential.  Canada draw two games, win a game or Panama fails to go 3-0-0.

Canada can clinch against Mexico and the US by winning two games.  They can also still clinic by going 1 win, 2 draws as long as they don't get net outscored by 8 goals (Mexico) or 5 goals (US).

There are scenarios where Canada could collapse here but it's basically guaranteed they make the World Cup at this point and it would take an embarrassing effort to not finish atop the standings.

Thanks for that, LK...I was trying to find that exact information this morning.

I appreciate it.

Guaranteed loss in next round to lowly Huddersfield.

Has Laryea played as yet?

No - he made the bench the other day. I think it's the first time he's been available since the World Cup Qualifiers - we have a great right-back/right wing back currently who he won't displace (Gjed Spence) but he's only on loan, so will be back at 'boro next season (and sold)
I'm loooking forward to seeing Laryea play.

Unlucky in Costa Rica. Hoping we can clinch Sunday.

Is it just me or does the main camera look a bit meh in terms of quality?

Excellent pressure by Canada throughout the half thus far.
